Weekly Photo Challenge: Indulge

Chest

For years I’ve had a very specific vision for my bedroom. I wanted it to look similar to the rooms I saw in movies and musicals from the 1930s and 1940s. I describe it as a blend of Art Deco, Hollywood glamour and Manhattan penthouse. It’s still a work in progress as my vision is quite pricey and I’m trying to stay true to it within a practical budget. This chest, that resembles stacked steamer trunks, is one of the ways I let myself indulge.

I LOVE this piece. Not a day goes by that I don’t look at it appreciatively. It’s the first thing I see when I enter the room.  It’s functional and stylish–roomy for a small space. Looks a little bit old yet also modern, and it’s not too girly or too masculine. It’s the first real piece of furniture, quality furniture, I’ve purchased. I lived with the same $200 particle-board bedroom furniture for 20 years. It was time for me to indulge.

If you look closely, you’ll see me up top, surrounded by acting royalty–Josephine Baker and Dorothy Dandridge.

  1. I like that!

    I’ve been seeing a lot of mirrored furniture at places like Home Goods and Marshalls. That always makes me think of old Hollywood boudoirs.
